"wooden skipping ropes"

Once in a while a toy comes along that makes my heart skip a beat.  This is one of those times.  I mean how gorgeous are these skipping ropes?  They seriously look good enough to eat… think raspberry ice-cream or lemon sorbet!  As a kid, skipping was one of my favourite activities and I remember devising all kinds of random skipping games and competitions.  Seeing these ropes, I’m tempted to get back in to it but since my energy levels won’t be quite what they were, it might have to be my daughter instead.

There is a wonderful store in Barcelona called Nobodinoz and they have just started making their own line of wooden toys which include a beautiful bowling set and these ropes.  Both are made of 100% birch wood and use non-toxic paints and varnishes.  There are more toys to come in this range but these 2 will be available at the end of November.  I can’t wait to see what else Nobodinoz will create and in the meantime I’m adding this rope (pink or teal… can’t decide!) to my daughter’s Christmas gift list.

"balancing beans game kids"

Toys that challenge kids always get my vote and if they’ve got beautiful looks to boot, then they become pretty much irresistible to me like these balancing beans.  With their high gloss finish and their ever so pretty combination of natural wood and soft colour, I think these beans would be hard to resist for any age.  Maybe that’s why the recommended age for them is 3 to 99 years!  These balancing beans can be stacked in many different ways so kids can experiment and explore the different stacking options.  And once they outgrow this balancing game, well it’s your turn to have these delightful beans to display where you like.  Although with their super smooth finish, I think I’d just want to touch them all day long!  These Magical Balancing Beans are made by Play Me and you can get them on Amazon.

Today I wanted to share this beautiful, charming store called Sisters Guild with you.  Sisters Guild is the vision of 2 sisters who really embrace beauty and creativity in everything they do.   They offer kids clothes, toys, decor, party stuff and even stuff for mama’s.  Many of their goodies are vintage inspired; some that will feel familiar from your own childhood, others that will be a new take on an old favourite and yet others that will be completely new ideas.

All the pieces are hand picked by the 2 sisters and are chosen for their appealing looks, their design and their ability to inspire.  You’ll find beautifully made toys that you’ll want to keep forever, timeless clothes that can be handed down from one child to another, pretty little things for yourself or for a good friend and covetable pieces to brighten up your home.  This store is special so do check out Sisters Guild and while you’re there don’t miss their blog… it’s seriously good.
